As I write this Supanova has kicked off at the RNA Showgrounds in Brisbane. I’ll be there over the weekend (9-10th November) with bright shiny new copies of my Jakirian Cycle (for those from USA, Supanova is the Australian version of ComiCon). I’m be taking pics of the cosplay and posting them next week. There are usually some great costumes, and I’m sure this year will be no exception.
I’ll be sitting at my table in Artist’s Alley (in the RICC building) with fellow Queensland writers Rowena Cory Daniells (of former MGC fame), well known for her King Rolen’s Kin series, and Cheryse Durrant, who has just released her new book The Blood She Betrayed.
The Jakirian Cycle comprises three books, The Calvanni, Scytheman, and Sorcerer. All three feature great covers by Daryl Lindquist.
I’m excited to say that Calvanni and Scytheman have been released as ebooks. They are available here on Amazon.
Just in case you missed it here is a run-down on the Jakirian Cycle. . .
Think Kill Bill meets Dune . . . Heroic Fantasy in world of ceramic weapons where all metal is magical . . .
In The Calvanni, the cavern-dwelling Eathal have emerged to wreak their vengeance on mankind. The fate of innocent thousands rests on finding the Scion – lost heir to the fallen Empire. The Temple has outlawed the ancient practice of Sorcery. Its Druids dominate religious and secular power, but are ill-equipped to resist an unknown evil once contained by the Emperors.
Scytheman follows on from events in The Calvanni. The city of Raynor is now in turmoil. False-Scion Osterac has declared himself heir to the fallen Empire and his supporters riot on the streets. Legions of non-human Eathal advance across the continent, destroying all in their path. The future of Yos lies in the balance and only the Scion can unite the shattered fragments of the fallen Empire. Pursued by the renegade Sorcerer Raziin, Cedrin and Ellen struggle to stay alive on a lawless continent torn by war. They are drawn toward a lethal contest for the awesome power of the Spear of Carris, where the identity of the true Scion will be revealed.
The three books follow Cedrin and Ellen as they face deeper and more hidden threats. Eventually they must face a final challenge as the most ancient secrets that bind their bloodlines are revealed.
I can’t tell you too much more about Sorcerer without spoilers.
If you are planning to attend Supanova Brisbane be sure to drop in and say hi.
